At my work place we do have questions regarding this.  The number of inquiries for a mobile Windows support is not has high as questions regarding iOS and Android but it is there.

I was under the impression that Windows Phones did not need antivirus, just like Apple phones. Does Windows Phone even have APIs that make antivirus possible? I really don't think Microsoft is going to allow another one of their products with Windows branding require antivirus protection.
 
Fundamentally, Windows Phone is not as permissive and open as Android. Other than Webroot hooking into the APIs that control application installation management and screen out "known bad" applications there, I don't see how this would work. But I'm not a mobile developer.

Hi Shawn, Can you clarify how this is Under Consideration? I can not find any information about WP providing any sort of API to allow an antivirus application to function.

It's the level of demand that's being considered.  I'm not sure this has even made it to the technical phase yet.
Windows Mobile is gaining popularity, I have seen lots of enterprise companies  standardising on their smartphone devices and windows mobile seems to be part of it. I also deal with mobile carriers and they have confirmed that Windows Mobile sales are increasing.
